El Escondite

The English translation for “El Escondite” is “the hideaway” and there are no truer words that describe this modern retreat tucked away in the rainforest. This private villa with 180 degree views of the ocean and jungle is set in the center of Tulemar, perfectly situated for easy access to the beach, walking trails, resort amenities, such as the restaurant and the front gate to the main street of Manual Antonio.  El Escondite was designed to provide a relaxed, modern coastal feel with layers of amenities, much like the owner’s homes in California.

As you enter El Escondite you’ll hear and see the waterfall coming from above, instantly providing an awaited feeling of Zen. As you reach the top of the first level, the relaxing infinity pool and spa set against the rich green background of the surrounding jungle will give you no choice but to quickly get settled & come back for a float.  This centralized point on the property provides the iconic Costa Rican experience of swimming while taking in breathtaking views of the ocean, serene landscape and wildlife, including monkeys, sloths & magnificent color-rich macaws.   Just steps away, this level is also home to the first primary suite.  The modern simplistic design does not sacrifice opulence with an open air bathtub located on the large balcony. The second level offers two guest bedrooms, each with two queen beds and their own bathrooms. The second primary suite is also on the second floor with a king size bed and daybed that can accommodate a child, if necessary. This suite brings the outdoor experience inside by providing stunning views of the sunset over the ocean and an open air shower that offers privacy while being surrounded by jungle.  All bedrooms have either ocean or jungle views and air conditioning.

Floating high in the clouds, the top floor is truly the showpiece of this villa with stunning views from the deeply green pigmented mountains to the deep blue ocean. The expansive sliding glass doors allow this area to be open air, feeling like you are living in a giant treehouse or comfortably enclosed indoors.  With a stunning, amenity filled modern kitchen, outdoor BBQ area and large dining table this will surely be the gathering location of the property for guests to enjoy meals, lounge & and boast upon picturesque sunrises and sunsets that will forever be ingrained in your mind as you think back upon your Costa Rican vacation.

Guests will receive a personal concierge during their stay, and they will have access to all the resort’s amenities including the beach, the 4 pools, and the on-site restaurant. Guests also are walking distance from many restaurants, grocery stores, shops, and ATMs in Manuel Antonio.

Awards & Honors

ANDRES BRENES – ARCHITECT – El ESCONDITE

Andres Brenes

Andres Brenes

El Escondite was designed by commission of two guests of Tulemar that fell in love with the landscape of the resort.

They are both passionate about the beauty of construction, whose interest is to live with nature in an open space of pure lines to integrate the experience of relaxed sophistication with the untamed biodiversity of Costa Rica.

Andres Brenes, an architect based in Manuel Antonio Costa Rica, is known for understanding and respecting the relationship between architecture and nature, promoting harmony between them and producing work that is perfectly related to their environment. The architect also believes that the organization of its interior and exterior components is essential for the balance of its structure and form. There needs to be a peaceful coexistence between its industrial and natural materials. It is here that it can enjoy the merit of being called a piece of art.

Located in the town of Manuel Antonio-Quepos, within Tulemar Resort, El Escondite opens between the jungle clearings, thus taking advantage of the pristine views of the coastal landscape.

In this special enclave, a set of coral columns defy gravity, causing empty spaces between them, which is where the architect decides to immerse the residents, trying not to create buildings or closed spaces, but to break them by letting them flow and interact with each other. The vertical transitions of the levels seduce you to explore higher and higher towards the interior and the upper levels.

An overlap of materials, textures and spaces are connected through bridges where the interior is mixed with the exterior and giving the occupant the feeling of floating on them.  It is in these spaces where this exchange takes place between the same columns that rise respectfully in their green surroundings and shelter the occupants in their voids, just as the human being guards his heart.

El Escondite is not just a simple spatial solution; it is an elaborate geometric complexity that gives rise to a sanctuary of freedom.

“The sophistication should seem simple,” says Andres Brenes.

Andres also designed Solangelo, PazAmore and The Bamboo Villas all located in Tulemar.
